“If only we can hold out”

Our diarists were scared by the latest war news.

25 March 1918

Agonizing time. If only we can hold out. But masses come against us, & we must go back!…

Soldiers came….

Hear Rupert recalled to his General. Charlie in thick of it.

William Hallam
25th March 1918

Much colder to-day. War news most depressing, in fact I felt sick and chilled all day through it. This evening it reads a bit better.

Diaries of Florence Vansittart Neale of Bisham Abbey (D/EX73/3/17/8)
and of William Hallam (D/EX1415/25)
